Am I the only one that thinks this?

I was browsin ebay today, came across a few Busas, and though, HOLY CRAP that thing might be fast but it looks like a cow on wheels. I mean its wide, and looks like its got a beergut or something. dont get me wrong, I like the hayabusa's performance stats, and its track record, it just looks too wide and low.

Yeah.......I'd much rather have the GSXR1000 over the Busa. Although, I have seen one that looks pretty good. Its a solid black one that a guy down the road from me has, it doesn't seem so wide for some reason.
